“Yoga” is often described “the union of body and breath.” Hatha yoga is a wellness practice that uses physical poses coordinated with breathing techniques and calming of the mind through relaxation and meditative techniques. Hatha yoga poses are often linked together into a flowing sequence. A consistent yoga practice improves flexibility and increases functional strength. Yoga is a practice that can be adapted to the abilities of any body, and the healthful benefits are many. Meet at the Towash Day-Use Area.
